Even before these days of "social distancing", many have spoken of the experience of loneliness. It doesn't have to be this way, and especially not in the church community. While our present culture pays more attention to romantic love, marriage, family, and other forms of relationship, Wesley Hill challenges us to retrieve - from Scripture and tradition - a rich understanding of friendship as a spiritual vocation, and explains how the church can foster friendship as a basic component of Christian discipleship. He helps us reimagine friendship as a robust form of love that is worthy of honour and attention in communities of faith, and suggests practical ways for all Christians to cultivate stronger friendships.
